Passage: Helaman 4:30 - Helaman 4:50

30 And it came to pass that in the eightieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi, There were a certain number of the dissenters from the people of Nephi which had some years before gone over unto the Lamanites and took upon themselves the name of Lamanites,
31 And also a certain number which were real descendants of the Lamanites being stirred up to anger by them, or by those dissenters, Therefore, they commenced a war with their brethren;
32 And they did commit murder and plunder; And then they would retreat back into the mountains and into the wilderness and secret places, Hiding themselves that they could not be discovered, Receiving daily an addition to their numbers, inasmuch as there were dissenters that went forth unto them.
33 And thus in time, yea, even in the space of not many years they became an exceeding great band of robbers; And they did search out all the secret plans of Gaddianton; And thus they became robbers of Gaddianton.
34 Now behold, these robbers did make great havoc, yea, even great destruction among the people of Nephi, and also among the people of the Lamanites.
35 And it came to pass that it was expedient that there should be a stop put to this work of destruction; Therefore, they sent an army of strong men into the wilderness and upon the mountains to search out this band of robbers and to destroy them;
36 But behold, it came to pass that in that same year, they were driven back even into their own lands.
37 And thus ended the eightieth year of the reign of the judges over the people of Nephi.
38 And it came to pass in the commencement of the eighty and first year, they did go forth again against this band of robbers and did destroy many;
39 And they were also visited with much destruction; And they were again obliged to return out of the wilderness and out of the mountains unto their own lands because of the exceeding greatness of the numbers of those robbers which infested the mountains and the wilderness.
40 And it came to pass that thus ended this year; And the robbers did still increase and wax strong, insomuch that they did defy the whole armies of the Nephites, and also of the Lamanites; And they did cause great fear to come unto the people upon all the face of the land;
41 Yea, for they did visit many parts of the land and did do great destruction unto them- Yea, did kill many and did carry away others captive into the wilderness, yea, and more especially their women and their children;
42 And now this great evil which came unto the people because of their iniquity did stir them up again in remembrance of the Lord their God.
43 And thus ended the eighty and first year of the reign of the judges.
44 And in the eighty and second year, they began again to forget the Lord their God.
45 And in the eighty and third year, they began to wax strong in iniquity.
46 And in the eighty and fourth year, they did not mend their ways.
47 And it came to pass in the eighty and fifth year, they did wax stronger and stronger in their pride and in their wickedness; And thus they were ripening again for destruction; And thus ended the eighty and fifth year.
48 And thus we can behold how false, and also the unsteadiness of, the hearts of the children of men. Yea, we can see that the Lord in His great infinite goodness doth bless and prosper those who put their trust in Him.
49 Yea, and we may see at the very time when He doth prosper His people- Yea, in the increase of their fields, their flocks and their herds, And in gold and in silver and in all manner of precious things of every kind, and art;
50 Sparing their lives and delivering them out of the hands of their enemies; Softening the hearts of their enemies that they should not declare wars against them; Yea, and in fine, doing all things for the welfare and happiness of His people-
